Title: Cheese please
Post by: SilverLining on October 18, 2020, 05:37:58 PM
Searched and there was nothing recent.

Is there a good cheese substitute? One that labels well for other allergens.

I am not allergic to dairy, but Symptoms from my dairy intolerance is extreme.

My husband likes Daiya shreds (mozzarella, cheddar, pepper jack) baked on pizzas, nachos, or toast. I donít think it is something anyone would want to eat raw, though.

I have a vegetable and tofu (or some sort of nut) based cheesy sauce we use on pasta is you want the recipe.

Thanks, I have a spaghetti sauce that doesnít bother me.

I see they also have a ďyoghurtĒ. 👍

If shared lines are an issue, give Daiya a call. They can tell you which items are made in their dedicated top-10-Free facility and which are made on shared lines or in a shared facility. They donít always label for those.

Go Dairy Free has a lot of reviews of substitute cheese based on what you need it for.  Obviously some don't work with nut allergies.

The store we do trunk drops since pandemic started does not sell Daiya. Since we had to go to a different store this week I picked up a few. Cheddar block and shredded mozzarella.

Tried the block today to make some grilled cheese sandwiches, and also cut a small piece to just eat.

The colour was very good, as was the smell. It smelled like cheddar cheese. The taste...not perfect, but not bad. Usually I put a bit of garlic salt on my grilled cheese, but I wanted to try this without it. It needs flavours added. But I can see using it on nachos, tacos, or pizza. Well....the mozzarella cheese for the pizza.

Found frozen Diaya pizzas on sale this week.  Have not tried them yet, but next time we order pizza, I get to have some with "cheese" too!

Please be careful with Daiya products if you have a milk allergy. Not all of their products are made in a milk-free facility. They have great customer service and can tell you which ones are made in a shared facility, and shared lines, if you call. (The shreds themselves are okay, last I checked... but they added potato - gah!)

Has anyone tried https://violifefoods.com/en_ca/ ?

It appears safe, even for my allergens. (Does have potato starch is some, not sure about all.) Since I donít think itís available at either of the stores I shop at I havenít really looked into it to much. Just thought others might be interested.

I have looked into it before but the potato kept me from trying it.  It looks promising, and someone in my local allergy group recommended it.
